Former SSE Riga Rector Leif Mutén Awarded
Former SSE Riga Rector Leif Mutén (1997-1999) has received the Paul Harris Fellow award from the Stockholm Ladugårdslandets Rotary Club.
At the award ceremony, Leif Mutén was recognized for his long-term commitment to the Rotary Club in general and in particular for his initiative and commitment to the Scholarship Programme for students from the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga. The Scholarship Programme was initiated by Leif Mutén after his resignation as Rector. Each year, it gives a team of thesis-writing SSE Riga BSc. students the opportunity to go to Stockholm to undertake field work of relevance to their thesis. In addition to covering costs associated with field work, the Programme gives recipients the opportunity to draw on the extensive network of the Stockholm Ladugårdslandets Rotary Club.
Students interested in applying for the Rotary 2012 Scholarship should contact the SSE Riga BSc thesis coordinator.
